On 2, 3 and 4 October, the 8th edition of the Colnago Cycling Festival was held on the lakeside in Desenzano del Garda.
This weekend celebrating the biking world, dedicated to sport and passion, was attended not only by sportspeople but also by families, the simply curious and the entire region.
Long-distance cyclists rode two routes: a medium 110-km route with total climb of 1384m and a long 145-km route with 2100m of climb. The latter route took the cyclists past three lakes: Garda, Valvestino and Idro. It offered breathtaking views, unmissable climbs and the opportunity to enjoy local hospitality with lavish refreshments, including typical delicacies served by smiling volunteers.
Like every year, the Saturday was dedicated to “baby bikers”, who amazed parents and passers-by with their mountain bikes and, for the first time, road bikes, delighting in tests of ability worthy of the best cyclists.
Dryarn®, one of the event sponsors again this year, helped to create the technical X-BIONIC® T-shirt contained in the race pack. Everyone taking part in Colnago CF20 received this new product, the fruit of innovation, research and development, a garment researched down to the finest detail by the developers at X-BIONIC®, made with Dryarn® and signed Colnago: an outstanding triple line-up contained within one single product.
Here is a video giving an overview of this weekend of fun and sporting values, which will be repeated the first weekend of April.
So, see you in 2021!
